Sugar Hill | 1994 | R | - 5.7.9

Wesley Snipes stars as a gangster attempting to go straight.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A very brief scene in which a woman is in her underwear. One near-rape scene (see Violence/Gore below). There are also many references to sexual acts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Lots of gunfire, but not much blood. Two women are punched repeatedly in the face. Several dead bodies are seen in the distance. A torture scene in which a man is burned by cigarettes -- off screen -- and then he is doused with gasoline and set on fire. Another man is beaten and shot several times, as well as urinated on and finally shot in the head. A woman is attacked in an attempted rape: she is pushed around, beaten in the face and then forced to her knees to perform oral sex. Scenes of shooting up heroin including one in which two small boys are witnesses to their mother's shooting up and one is actually made to assist her. She goes into convulsions and dies in front of the children. The father is beaten and shot.

LANGUAGE 9 - The F-word and its variations are used repeatedly. There are also racial slurs and insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
